Since the original publication of this book, available computer power has increased greatly. Today, scientific computing is playing an ever more prominent role as a tool in scientific discovery and engineering analysis. In this second edition, the key addition is an introduction to the finite element method. This is a widely used technique for solving partial differential equations (PDEs) in complex domains. This text introduces numerical methods and shows how to develop, analyse, and use them. Complete MATLAB programs for all the worked examples are now available at www.cambridge.org/Moin, and more than 30 exercises have been added. This thorough and practical book is intended as a first course in numerical analysis, primarily for new graduate students in engineering and physical science. Along with mastering the fundamentals of numerical methods, students will learn to write their own computer programs using standard numerical methods.

Engineers need hands-on experience in solving complex engineering problems with computers. This text introduces numerical methods and shows how to develop, analyze, and use them. A thorough and practical book, it is intended as a first course in numerical analysis, primarily for new graduate students in engineering and physical science. Along with mastering the fundamentals of numerical methods, students will learn to write their own computer programs using standard numerical methods. They will learn what factors affect accuracy, stability, and convergence, and also not to believe at first glance the numerical output spewed out from a computer. A special feature is the numerous examples and exercises that are included to give students first-hand experience. The material is based on Professor Moin's teachings in numerical analysis and in his own career as a computational physicist/engineer. A thorough solutions manual is availble upon request from the publisher.
